Sorry, it's been a wee while. Life has been a little bit ca-razy the last few weeks but ho hey, that's life!
To kick off being back in action I thought a Valentine's Day Gift Guide was in order. Just 'coz. Plus it's the right time of year to do one. It would be a bit silly doing one in August. Anywho, let's crack on shall we?
(Here's the bit where I pretend to be a saleswoman)
Stuck for gift ideas for your significant other?
Perused all the shops but still can't find anything?
Running outta time?
Well! I have the perfect solutions for you!
So sit back, grab a cuppa, stay in those jammies and relish in the fact that I have done all the hard work for you

Everyone has pillows, why not a pillowcase?
There is no one else I'd rather lie in bed and look at my phone next to... kind of sums up the modern world in a tongue in cheek pillowcase. Perfect for the significant other with a bit of a sense of humour. Plus it's all soft and cosy and can be used all year round. Constantly reminding them that you got the best present.
Or why not an I love weird I am weird pillowcase?
Create a three-year time capsule of your relationship
The Q & A a day provides a question for every day of the year, with enough space for two people to jot down a one- or two-sentence response. There are a variety of questions from relationship to writing about each other to writing about yourself. If you are in it for the long haul, this is the present for you. Plus how cool would it be looking back on the journal in many years to come and read what you each wrote?
Who doesn't love being a big kid and playing with Lego?
A lego Valentine's dinner is a great gift for the SO who is a bit o' a big kid at heart. You can pop it on your dressing table in all its glory.
Personalised engraved wallet insert
A personalised engraved wallet insert allows you to constantly remind your SO that you does love them an awful lot. You can pop on it a special saying that the two of you have or a loving message. 'tis completely up to you.
C'mon who doesn't love this movie? Love Actually is the perfect Romantic Movie to snuggle up to. Even if it isn't Christmas time.
A memory jar filled with love notes
A love note memory jar is a great personalised gift. You can write in it all the things you love about your partner, little in-jokes, sayings the two of you share or memories together you treasure.
- Put together a playlist of their favourite songs (the modern version of a mixed tape)
- Make a bouquet of flowers from your garden
- Snatch up some concert tickets for their favourite band
- Write a poem - it doesn't have to be cheesy
- Spend the day at an amusement park
- Tick something off your bucket list together
- Plan a mystery tour
- Get all your favourite DVD's, snacks, blanket, bottle of wine and settle in for the night
- Grab some fish and chips and a blanket and head to the beach
- Valentines Day is just that, a day. No need to stress or panic
- Try think of an experience you can do together rather than a physical product to give
- Quality time together should be the main focus
- If you are quite clever making something is a fab idea. It is very personal and takes time and effort
- Set a spending limit. You don't want to spend $100 while they spend $15 or vice versa.
Remember Valentine's Day is showing your partner how much you appreciate them, sometimes quality time spent together is a much more worthy investment. Though some of the above gifts are pretty cool really. And who doesn't like receiving the odd pressie?
So there you have it. Some personal gift ideas right from the comfort of your own home. Handy huh?
Are you celebrating Valentine's Day this year?
Pin for later
